The Salem Quakers were a short-lived minor league baseball club that existed in 1912. Based in Salem, Ohio, the team played in the Ohio-Pennsylvania League from the start of the season until July 9th. That day the team was relocated to Fairmont, West Virginia and became the Fairmont Fairies. The team then went just 15-16 in Fairmont and folded on July 16 - the league itself did not last much longer, ending less than a month afterwards. Fairmont was declared champion when the Steubenville-Follansbee Stubs were unable to field a team for the playoffs.
